Wearing lash extensions can be a very rewarding experience that helps you boost your appearance and improve your ocular health. An eyelash extension is bonded to your natural lash to help make it longer and add volume to your lashes over all. Because they are also curled slightly, they reach upward, helping your eyes look more open and dramatically framing them. They can help improve the health of your eyes by eliminating the use of mascara, one of the main culprits for eye irritation and infection.
The use of eyelash extensions as beauty aids is becoming an increasingly popular way to change the way one looks without resorting to surgery. It is a simple solution that is relatively easy to accomplish, and most lash extensions are maintenance free. As long as proper bonding between the semi permanent eyelash and the natural eyelash takes place, it is possible to wear eyelash extensions almost anywhere and participate in almost any activity. This makes it possible for you to look your best, and draw attention to your eyes, while you do almost anything. The fact that eyelash extensions are waterproof is a big plus, ensuring that you can go swimming and take showers without worrying whether or not your extensions will fall off.
One of the biggest benefits associated with wearing lash extensions, however, is how it makes mascara obsolete in your makeup regimen. Mascara is designed to lengthen and thicken lashes, as well as curl them. An eyelash extension does all of these things, but without running when wet, smudging, or smearing. Additionally, you do not have to worry about the occasional slip resulting in an eye poke that while it may not cause permanent damage, causes serious setbacks in your daily routine. Mascara is also a major cause of infection and eye irritation. This is because when it dries many people attempt to moisten it and succeed mostly in introducing bacteria into the mascara supply. Mascara should not be kept any longer than three months, but many people use it until it is gone. With eyelash extensions, the use of mascara is not necessary, and that can save hassle and prevent eye problems.
In order to maintain the best look, however, it is a good idea to have touch up eyelash extension applications every three weeks or so. Because the extensions are directly attached to the natural lashes, they will fall out as the normal lash cycle progresses. So, while the extensions will not cause lashes to fall prematurely, they will fall as part of the ordinary life of the eyelash. This can create gaps after two or three weeks. If you keep up with touch ups, however, you will be able retain the look at a reasonable price (touch ups usually cost much less than full applications).
An eyelash extension looks and feels natural. It boosts the look of your eyes, and can also improve your confidence, as you feel better about yourself. In addition to these benefits, lash extensions also pave the way for you to get rid of your mascara and help you better maintain the over all heath of your eyes.
